Recording video calls from WhatsApp is possible through a trick, as the app does not allow you to save calls natively on Android. Interested parties may use DU Recorder or other third party services capable of recording screen images of the mobile phone. With the free tool, you can record video calls made through the world's most popular messenger. On the other hand, audio cannot be captured due to system restrictions, which prevent recording while the microphone is in use by the messenger.
In the following tutorial, check out how to use the DU Recorder app to record video links on WhatsApp. The procedure was performed on a Moto E5 Plus with Android 8.0 Oreo, but the tips also apply to other devices with the Google system. Please note that the tool is not available on the App Store, the official iPhone app store (iOS). Apple provides a native feature for recording with use.
